LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- I-65 North will be closed from Friday, Oct. 20 through Monday, Oct. 23 for construction,

The northbound lanes will close from I-264 to Spaghetti Junction at 8 p.m. Friday. They should reopen by the Monday morning commute.

It's similar to the southbound closure in September.

Crews are installing a high-friction surface between the Broadway and Muhammad Ali exits in the hospital curve area. Spokesperson for KYTC District 5 Andrea Clifford said this will help reduce the number of crashes in this area.

"It's not something you're going to feel with your tires," Clifford said. "But it certainly is going to help with lane departures when you have wet pavement out there. It gives you more skid resistance."

Crews will also install new pavement joints to make the road smoother. Clifford said it's already made a difference in the same six-mile stretch on I-65 South.

"We've actually had people tell us what a smoother ride it is going southbound," Clifford said. "So they're going to notice the same thing northbound."

Crews finished early on the southbound work in September and hope to do the same northbound. However, Clifford said there's a chance rain on Sunday could get in the way.

"It may be something that if we don't get a few of the joints finished this weekend due to rain, it may be something we have to come back and do at another point," she said. "But right now, everything is looking pretty good."
